I’m a Pediatric Surgeon specialized in Fetal Surgery, Digestive Surgery and Minimally Invasive Surgery. I’m Head of Section in Fetal and Fetoscopic Surgery, Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery since January 2018 and lead the Pediatric Digestive and Thoracic Surgery Unit. My fields of expertise are the fetoscopic treatment of neural tube defects and the colorectal surgery and my research is focused on the fetal treatment of congenital malformations.

Curriculum

Formed in Rovira i Virgili University, I did my specialization in the Hospital Universitari Vall d’Hebron (2001-2006). After a year in Montpellier I moved back to our hospital to develop the Minimally Invasive Surgery in the fields of Digestive and Colorectal Surgery and Fetal Surgery. My activity is completed with a strong implication to the experimental research where I obtained my PhD, Cum Laude, thanks to a work on prenatal treatment of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.
I’m involved on the following committees: Congenital Defects, Airway Surgery, Bullous Epidermolysis and Spina Bifida. I’m part of the following associations: Sociedad Española de Cirurgía Pediátrica, EUropean Pediatric Surgeon's Association, European Society of Pediatric Endoscopic Surgeons, Group d'Étude de la Coeliochirurgie Infantile, ARM-Net consortium and International Pediatric Endosurgery Group, in which I’m Faculty. I also teach about pediatric digestive surgery in UAB.
I have developed two surgical techniques in Colorectal and Fetal Surgery being pioneer in the fetoscopic treatment of myelomeningocele. My areas of interest are, besides the Fetal Surgery, the Robotic Surgery, the anorectal malformations, Hirschsprung Disease, esophageal and gastric conditions, digestive malformations, congenital defects, inflammatory bowel disease and bullous epidemolysis.
I have also designed a simulator on the Fetoscopic Treatment of Myelomeningocele and been co-director of three international courses on neonatal diseases and minimally invasive surgery in neonatal and fetal conditions.
